‘Outlander’ Season 3 Spoilers: Caitriona Balfe Says Highly-Anticipated Print Shop Scene Will Make Fans Swoon
"Outlander" fans are very much looking forward to the print shop scene in Season 3. Those who have read the books already know that the pivotal scene serves as a reunion between Claire and Jaime after 20 years of separation.
Caitriona Balfe, who portrays Claire on "Outlander," teased the highly-anticipated print shop scene during the Golden Globes last weekend. Careful to not spoil anything big, the actress told Entertainment Weekly that Claire and Jaime's (Sam Heughan) reunion was "written very beautifully" by Matt B. Roberts.
Balfe assured "Outlander" fans that the scene has "every emotion in it. The excitement, the tentativeness, the nerves, everything." The print shop scene was depicted in Diana Gabaldon's "Voyager," the third novel in the book series that the show was based on.
Jamie sent Claire back to the 20th century to spare her from the doom of the Battle of Culloden. Claire rebuilt her life with her first husband Frank (Tobias Menzies) while raising her and Jaime's daughter, Brianna (Sophie Skelton). But then she finds out that Jaime survived the bloody battle, and she returns through the stones to reunite with him in the print shop where he works.
Balfe is perfectly aware of how vital the scene is to the books' fans, saying that they "better get it right" to satisfy viewers' expectations. Check out teasers from the print shop scene below from the "Outlander" crew.

Production for "Outlander" Season 3 is being rushed. Gabaldon recently revealed that shooting is underway and the TV team has already finished half of the episodes for the upcoming season, which has 13 episodes.
According to Gabaldon, the "Outlander" crew usually gets a three-week break for Christmas, but that was cut short to only two weeks for the Season 3 production, The Herald reported. Later this year (probably around May), production will shift from Scotland to South Africa to shoot scenes that occur on a ship sailing the Caribbean.
"Outlander" Season 3 will feature new characters. There are the affluent Dunsany sisters, Geneva (Hannah James) and Isobel (Tanya Reynolds), with the former described as a "headstrong" and "spoiled" girl and the latter as the younger sister with a "warm, friendly, and genuine" nature, Den of Geek reported.
Other new cast members are César Domboy as the adult Fergus, while David Berry will portray Lord John William Grey, who will be friends with Jaime. Do you think "Outlander" can satisfy fans with its depiction of the print shop scene? Share your thoughts below!
